  • The accuracy requirements for various measured/calculated exposure and correlation parameters associated with current dosimetry and damage analysis procedures and practices depend on the accuracy needs of reactor development efforts in testing, design, safety, operations, and surveillance programs. Present state-of-the-art accuracies are estimated to be in the range of +-2 to 30 percent (1 sigma), depending on the particular parameter. There now appears to be international agreement, at least for the long term, that most reactor fuels and materials programs will not be able to accept an uncertainty greater than about +5 percent (1 sigma). The current status of dosimetry andmore » damage analysis standardization work within the U.S. for LWR, FBR and MFR is reviewed in this paper.« less

  • Several recent works have considered variants of the mortar-finite element method for numerical treatment of contact phenomena. The method has shown considerable promise for the spatial discretization of contact interactions, particularly for kinematically linear applications where one or both of the contacting surfaces are flat. Desirable features already demonstrated for the method in this specialized setting include passage of patch tests, preservation of convergence rates that would be obtained with a perfectly conforming mesh, and accurate resolution of contact stresses on interfaces. This paper concerns itself with the successful extension of these methods to encompass contact of geometrically noncoincident surfaces.more » The issue of patch test passage over curved interfaces will be discussed. It will be shown that a generalization of the mortar projection method is required to pass patch tests in this instance. Issues relating to the exact numerical integration of the mortar projection integrals will also be outlined, and a convergence study for a mortar tying application will be presented.« less
  • The dependence of the yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, and reduction in area on temperature for the V-15Ti-7.5Cr, V-20Ti, V-15Cr-5Ti, V-12Cr-5Ti, V-10Cr-5Ti, and V-3Ti-1Si alloys was determined from tensile tests at temperatures ranging from 25 to 700/sup 0/C. The strength of the alloys increased with an increase of the combined Cr and Ti concentration. The total elongation for the alloys ranged between 20% and 38%. The reduction in area ranged from 30% to 90%. The DBTT, which was determined from the temperature dependence of the reduction in area, was less than 25/sup 0/C for the V-15Ti-7.5Cr, V-20Ti, and V-3Ti-1Si alloys.more » The DBTT for the V-10Cr-5Ti, V-12Cr-5Ti, and V-15Cr-5Ti alloys was also less than 25/sup 0/C if these alloys were annealed to reduce the hydrogen concentration prior to the tensile test. If these latter alloys were not annealed prior to the tensile test, the DBTT ranged from 40/sup 0/C to 90/sup 0/C and the DBTT increased with an increase of the Cr concentration. A Cr/Ti concentration ratio of 0 to 0.5 in these alloys was found to cause the alloys to be less susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement. 14 refs., 4 figs., 3 tabs.« less
